THEME: God’s Appointed Time
PASSAGE: Genesis 18:1-15
HYMN: MHB 511: BEGONE, unbelief; my saviour is near.
MEMORY VERSE: Genesis 21:5 “Abraham was a hundred years old when Isaac was born.”
In life, God has a time for everything. Even when it appears He is not following your timetable, be rest assured that His timetable for your life is far better than yours.
Abraham and Sarah faced a situation that seemed hopeless. Sarah was “past the age of childbearing” and even laughed when told that she would have a son. But God declared, “Is anything too hard for the Lord?” What seemed inconceivable was possible for Him. But He promised that this miracle would take place only at the appointed time. They had waited so long for the fulfilment that they may have given up. Year after year they waited. Yet God still had an appointed time for them. And, when that time came, He performed a miracle, in His time, and in His way (Genesis 21: 1-5).
When we think about the birth of Jesus, we are reminded afresh of God’s appointed time. How He sent Jesus into this world at just the right time. And that He always keeps His promises. He answered Hannah at the right time.
You may have been waiting for the fulfilment of God’s promises to you. You may have been praying about a matter and thought about giving up. You may face situations that seem hopeless and problems that do not seem to have solutions. But the Bible reminds us that God can do all thing. He has an appointed time for His answer and the fulfilment of His promises.
Remember that God’s promises are true for you. Allow faith to rise within your heart. Pray with boldness. Believe that His infinite power is available for you. Remember: Nothing is impossible for God! Don’t give up. He has an appointed time for you and your miracle.
PRAYER: Father, I believe that Your promises are true. I will stay faithful and trust You in Jesus’ name. Amen.
